  1. Hi Jock (Paolo) I had sent a private message, but later I saw many messages from Charles Bauer, heading a project where I am also involved. Here, we are receiving some hundreds of TV BOX, MXQ PRO, model 3228A (probably 1 of RAM and 8 of ROM) and with the task to transform it a Linux machine. Well, this task requires some scalability to do this conversion following a methodology. What I had thought: 1. Install the ARMBIAN in one these box, and configure it with all desired customizations 2. Do a back-up of this box using the Multitool (option for backup) I saw that the Multitool did a copy of whole eMMC (or NAND) memory... resulting in a file without extension of 7,8G (around this ) My supposition about this backup option, it generates a whole image of this TV BOX, and ready to be replicated in another similar box??? Am I right? 3. Using the restore option, I choose this file to burn news TV BOX. Am I correct in my reasoning? Is there another stractegy to replicate a configuration in hundred of box? Unfortunately, I can not do a dd from another Linux machine, using a male-to-male USB, once the MXQ PRO, with any powering in usb it boots!!!! Any tips to replicate a hundred of TVBOX in customized ARMBIAN? Am I correct to install the backup, an image, by restore with Multittol? How can I copy with dd all the system from a TVBOX with Rockchip 322X ... it simply boots connecting any male-to-male USB cable Cheers in advance claudio PS: this project has some support of Brazillian governament
  2. Jock In both figures, the chipset is cover with the dissipator. Is it a RK322X? Normally, with the data about the correct CPU, ROM and RAM, try apply to use a similar software. I did it once with success on an ANDROID ROM from another manufacturer. claudio PS: Jock, I just sent you a private message about a question on multitool. Feel free to put it in this forum
  3. Hi Everyone I have one Matricom G-Box Android with Lollipop 5.1.1. But, they discontinued an Android for this box. So, after a well succeeded Armbian installation in a MXQ PRO with RK3228A, I want to do the same with this box. As I can not find nothing about these steps, except the kernel generation ( Well, someone could be provide all the steps by-steps for an ARMBIAN installation in this box? How to generate a SD or USB card? Which kernel .Image or zip file should burn it? For instance, for box with Rockship are well described here in Armbian site, but nothing for Amlogic boards, specifically this S802 ? Thanks in advance claudio
  4. Hi Jock Once time you save me. I just install pavucontrol and pulseaudio ... probably I had purged them by my mistake. Everything is running pretty well, the pavucontrol is mandatory. For the next time I will send you a photo of my desktop (I use the ICEWM). I am keeping some information about my experiments in: and (one the very best desktop for it) Thanks once Claudio PS 1 : someone from Armbian could be answer me, of my offer to translate some scripts of ARMBIAN to PORTUGESE (PT and BR)??? PS 2 : Mark this as solved !
  5. Hi Everyone I installed the Armbian in a TVBOX with 1 G ram and 8 ROM, cpu RK3228a, quadri-core 1.2. (a classical MXq PRO 5G very known in Brazil). I also did a video in PORTUGESE in youtube ... Everything was working fine, but after one aptitude update & aptitude dist-upgrade, I lost the sound. The version that is running: armbian 20.11.3 Buster How can I access the HDMI output and enable its sound output? In addition, the AV output works? In my case it is not recognize it Thanks in advance CLAUDIO root@rk322x-box:/home/ccs# armbianmonitor -u System diagnosis information will now be uploaded to Please post the URL in the forum where you've been asked for. root@rk322x-box:/home/ccs# htop root@rk322x-box:/home/ccs# armbianmonitor -u System diagnosis information will now be uploaded to Please post the URL in the forum where you've been asked for. root@rk322x-box:/home/ccs#
  6. Jock I reinstall the system now with Debian (minimal - Buster) and ICEWM graphical interface. The icewm is lighter than XFCE and other. the 3D habitation was confirmed by $ glxinfo | grep "direct rendering" direct rendering: Yes ... but unfortunately the KODI keeps very LOW ... definitely I gave up of KODI under ARMBIAN. My "beast" with 1G ram, 1.2 Ghz, is very weak for this proposal. Someone from this forum experimented the LibreELEC with some success ... in my tests with LibreELEC none image booted ... is there any trick to burn an image of LibreELEC? Sorry, I know, this forum is of Armbian (great distro). Anyone has a LibreELEC image for MXQPro-RK3228A ? Any trick to burn in a SD? How to boot it? Excuse me for this "out-topic" claudio PS: anyway my Armbian (Debian minimal) with ICEWM is very fast !!!!
  7. Hi Jock Thanks for your quick response. Positive or negative results on your indication I will be asking here. Really any 3D habilitation was done in this installation. Thanks meanwhile claudio
  8. Hi everyone I installed Armbian Focal Legacy Minimal (UBUNTU version 20.04) on my MXQPro-RK3228A, once that this board has only 1 Giga RAM and 8 of ROM. I did this migration once that KODI in Android on this TV-BOX, really does not work appropriately. So, the linux with the XFCE was a natural path for me. Well, after installation I try the Linux with KODI... it works, but VERY SLOWLY ... impossible to use something like that. I just watch European TV channels, more specific the FRENCH TV. I have a VPN and to watch by browser should be a solution except that Firefox is quite SLOW also. So I would some application for Linux to watch TV. I experimented a freetux but is very limited on channels available. Someone could be give me some idea about an application or alternative for the poor TV-BOX? LibreELEC does not work with my TVBOX ... I do not know why. I tried many images, but unsuccessful Thanks in advance Claudio
